Shifra Chana Hendrie streamed live on Facebook yesterday, taking her participants to several holy sites in the land of Israel. It was an unprecedented accomplishment to have women posted and hosting in the various locations, including the Kotel, or Western Wall in Jerusalem.
This is a screenshot from the live-streamed event. On the left is Shifra Chana Hendrie praying during the event. On the right is a close-up of the Kotel. She took us all there, wherever we were watching on our computers, tablets and phones, all over the world. We were there at The Wall together, and we were praying together.
For centuries, Jews have prayed for the Messiah to come. Today, we can study scripture 24/7 and find thousands of opinions about the who, what, when and how of the Jewish Messiah on the web. But what really matters is what's going on in our own hearts with our Creator.
My personal thanks to Shifra Chana Hendrie for being the first person in my life to pray with me at the Kotel. Yes, I will always love her for that. Thank you, Shifra for taking us all to The Wall and praying with us there.
